The Pumpkins were safe, but several records in the 5K and 10K Great Pumpkin Runs were smashed to pieces Saturday at Venetucci Farm.
Three of the overall course marks fell.
In the 10K, Pat McGuire of Colorado Springs charged to the finish line in 33:53, breaking the old record of 35:12 set by Gerald Romero in 2009.
In the women's 10K, Elizabeth Watkins set a new standard of 38:12, beating Stephanie Wurtz' record of 40:21.
In the 5K races, Cody Hill, co-owner and manager of the Boulder Running Company, won with a record time of 17:42, two seconds faster than the previous best set by Adolfo Carrillo last year.
And 5k women's winner Nancy Hobbs clocked a 50-59 age-group record of 22:47, crushing the old standard of 26:21 set last year by Eileen Wilfong.
The race was the final in the Grand Prix of Running Series. There were 497 finishers.
Proceeds went to Venetucci Farm's education programs.
